DURGA is a story of Bhola (an old artist who paints the eyes of the idols of Goddess Durga) and a 7 year old girl named Durga, Bhola’s granddaughter. Bhola had devoted his entire life in bringing life to these idols by beautifully painting their eyes. Bhola, a true believer of the goddess, always wanted a girl child in his family, a manifestation of Goddess herself. After generations of male off springs, his daughter-in-law gave birth to a girl child, but as fate would have it, she was born blind. Bhola lived his life in this irony; an artist known to give eyes to lifeless idols could not do anything about the blindness of his precious granddaughter. To make up for it, he mustered hard not to let little Durga feel any less about herself. With Durga’s father having abandoned her at birth, Bhola takes it upon himself to be little Durga’s eyes. In the end, Bhola makes a life-altering choice and justifies his very existence and purpose in life not only towards his granddaughter but also his gifted skill as an artist.
